Under armour phantom 2 intelliknit

Under Armour May Have Created Their Best Running Shoe Yet

In Partnership with Under Armour

Thanks to a soft and stretchy material called IntelliKnit, one of Under Armour’s greatest running shoes has become even greater. Odds are you’re already familiar with the iconic Phantom 2, which delivers bouncy cushioning, blatant style, and a sock-like feel. To crank up the comfort dial, the brand wrapped those popular silhouettes in light, breathable UA IntelliKnit. Quick-to-dry and mapped to move with your feet, this patented material delivers even more flex and wearability. Behold the new Phantom 2 Intelliknit running shoes.

Under Armour runners typically feature more specs than your average race car and the Phantom 2 IntelliKnit is no exception. At the heart of its construction is UA HOVR technology, which cultivates a zero-gravity sensation. Bolstering its energy balance is a compression mesh Energy Web that contains and structures UA HOVR foam. Pair that with a moulded midfoot panel and ultra-soft cushioning and you get truly optimal energy return, no matter what the activity.

For those who already own UA sneakers, most of these specs will seem familiar by now. Indeed, if something isn’t broken, why fix it? To that end, the new Phantom 2 IntelliKnit also features trusty mainstays such as a breathable SpeedForm 2.0 sockliner, rubber outsole, and an external heel counter for extra support. That’s all in addition to its striking silhouette, which interweaves various patterns and textures and comes available in a variety of different colours.

Where UA’s latest kicks break from tradition is through the use of advanced IntelliKnit on the uppers. Equal parts soft and stretchy, this unique material adapts to the contours of your foot so as to improve flexibility and breathability alike. Not just conspicuously comfortable, it’s also quick to dry and effortlessly lightweight. When combined with all the other choice features, IntelliKnit drives home a sense of superlative wearability. These are the kind of sneakers you can rock all day, feeling as fresh as you did when you first threw them on.

If high performance and long-lasting comfort are two things you look for in a running shoe, the new UA Phantom 2 IntelliKnit has your name written all over it. With the inclusion of breathable IntelliKnit comes a new tier of wearability, the kind of which will keep your legs energised all day long. That’s in addition to all the legendary specs that this athletic brand has built their reputation on. Plus, the shoes just look freaking great. Pick up a pair and feel the difference.
